Transcript OFFERING ^WPhB^RhT Latin organizations No matter how much work they do, every group needs help on occasion. In the case of a school with such a huge number of organizations on campus, it was necessary to have groups whose job was to lead a number of other organizations. The Hispanic Students Association (HSA) was in charge of the Latin fraternities and sororities. "We're like their mother," said Patricia Ramirez, a sophomore MIS major, and the president of HSA. HSA helped the Latin groups with fundraising and membership. They would make sure the group in need received the money they required, and they helped staff the membership drives to encourage students to join. The groups executive board, which was composed of six officers, was elected by the officers of the other Latin organizations. This enabled the groups to have a say in who would be lead- WANNASAYTHAT AGAIN? Sophomore MIS major Patricia Ramirez, the president of HSA, led the discussion at a meeting. The officers discussed matters thoroughly before they gave money to a group.

HSA also helped coordinate many Latin- themed activities, such as the celebration of Mes de las Raza (Month of Culture), which took place between September 15th and October 15th. This gave other students the opportunity to learn more about the Hispanic culture and traditions. The group also helped its organizations to be involved in community service. They sponsored a toy drive, during which each group collected toys to turn in to HSA. The group which collected the most toys was awarded a plaque. HSA helped the Hispanic organizations on campus to maintain their focus on their goals of celebrating the Latin culture. Through their efforts, the various groups were able to accomplish more than they would have done alone. ■Ashley Grubbs ^J 1601 Organizations HERE'S A CAPTION!
